    Seafood Irradiation: The True Cost of Industrialization and Globalization A Food Irradiation Fact Sheet Irradiation: What is It? Irradiation is the process by which food is exposed to high doses of radiation—the equivalent of up to 1 billion chest x-rays. Irradiation kills bacteria and extends the shelf life of food, but destroys vitamins and.   Food irradiation is a physical method of processing food (e.g. freezing, canning). It has been thoroughly researched over the last four decades and is recognized as a safe and wholesome method. It has the potential both of disinfesting dried food to reduce storage losses and disinfesting fruits and vegetables to meet quarantine requirements for export by:

The Complete Guide to Preserving Meat, Fish, and Game Step-by-Step Instructions to Freezing, Canning, Curing/5(20).   The process involves the controlled application of energy of ionising radiation such as gamma rays, X-rays and accelerated electrons. Irradiation is a direct, simple and efficient one-time process. Application of low doses of radiation ( kilo Gray) can arrest the sprouting of potatoes and onions. (Gray is the unit of absorbed radiation energy.).

    Frustrated because putrid food was sapping his army's strength, Napoleon offered a prize of 12, francs for a method of food preser vation that would allow his forces to keep nourished on the move.

Jay. Radiation Preservation of Foods and Nature of Microbial Radiation Resistance. , DOI: /_ James M. Jay. Some topics discussed are: the nature of radiation; radiation in the daily routine; penetration of radiation; radiation dosimetry; preservation of food; use of x and gamma radiation for preservation of seafood; and advantages of radiopreservation over heat-processing, freezing, and other methods of preserving seafoods.

Radiation Preservation of Fish and By-products by K. Vas Fish and fishery products constitute a sizeable portion (%) of the total protein consumption, and a major part (%) of the animal protein consumption of the population in many of the 17 Member States of the Agency in South and South-East Asia and the Far East.

This publication includes reports of investigators under the Asian Regional Co-operative Project on Food Irradiation (RPFI), which was launched under the Asian Regional Co-operative Project on Radiation Preservation of Fish and Fishery Products (RCA), a project dealing mainly with reducing losses of fish and fishery products by applying radiation and assessing the economic feasibility of this technology.

Food irradiation is the exposure of food to a form of energy called ionizing radiation. The technique is used to reduce the losses of spoilage and to control microbes and other organisms in food.

Radiation in Food Preservation: 1-Nonionizing radiations Ultraviolet Light Ultraviolet (UV) light is a powerful bactericidal agent, with the most effective. Gamma irradiation of kGy is considered a successful method of preservation since it can reduce the populations of food-borne bacterial pathogens as well as many fish-specific bacterial.

5 Fish Processing and Preservation Postharvest losses of fish reach 35 percent, nearly 25 million tons, of the worId's fishing catch.

The role of fish in nutrition is being increas-ingly recognized as it supplies a good balance of protein, vitamins, and minerals (calcium, phos-phorus, and iron) associated with relatively low-calorie content.
